AC Milan intend to sign Brahim Diaz on a permanent basis and it is Paolo Maldini who is leading the charge, according to a report.
Brahim Diaz initially joined Milan on a one-year dry loan from Real Madrid for the 2020-21 season, and then that was extended by a further two years. Since that was confirmed, there has been some disagreement between Spanish and Italian sources as to whether the current loan includes an option to buy and a buy-back or not.
According to what is being reported by Diario AS in Spain (via MadridXtra), it is technical director Paolo Maldini who is a fan of Brahim Diaz in particular and he is the main reason Milan want to sign him permanently.
Maldini believes that his performances have been more positive this season so far, given he has seven goal contributions in 16 Serie A appearances so far this season, and that is why the Rossoneri’s stance is clear.
